For months now I have read you rantings. Let's set the record straight
once and for all. Last year you misrepresented yourself as a member
of the CKA board. You have routinely made statements to this list that
are false and misleading. Never once have we slandered you family in
any way and yet you continue to accuse us of doing it. If such statments
were made who supposedely made them and when were these statements made.
Imagine our surprise when your pictures showed up on your website last
year. You informed no one of what you were doing and then wonder why
people get mad, publishing photos on the web is different then keeping
a personal scrapbook. For the record you have attended maybe 1 meeting
and 2 CKA shows since I have been with the club. You have never been a
dues paying member of the CKA. You constantly bring up the names of
Romeo Mura and Mark Amen. Romeo has not been seen in a year and a half.
Mark has always been welcomed to whatever show that he attends. Last
month you made a statement about a non existant class at the Michiania
show and people believed you. You wasted a lot of web space for nothing.
You continue to make statements that are false and even misleading. Today
you accuse us of skimming fish off the top so that some members of the
CKA can benefit before any else can see the fish. That Adrian is an out
and out LIE. and I'm calling you on it.
You threaten to bring your lawyer and body guards with you. Bring them.
We have done nothing wrong. What are you afraid of. Intent to do bodily
harm is considered assult! Now why would we want to assult you? You
stated in past messages that we would like you to kiss various parts of
our anatomy. WHY? What is your problem?
If you have a problem with someone or some organisation email them
privately. Why do all your complaints always show up on the various
lists? . Earlier in this message you have accused us of smuggling fish
past customs. Where do you get your information from? The Dept of Fish
and Wildlife has been notified and are well aware of Wim's impending
arrival. For the record the CKA has never descriminated againt anyone
because of race, creed, color or religion. The individuals that make up
the CKA come from all walks of life. They come together bi-monthly to
talk fish. When a new person comes to meeting we make him feel as if
he was at home he's introduced to other members and invited to
participate in everything. In fact the CKA and the AKA have become like a
second family to many of us. So what is your problem Adrian! Before you
start making statements accusing people of wrong doing check you facts.
They may come back to haunt you. If you have specific questions about
the upcoming CKA Show address them to the proper people not the entire
My apologies to both Richard And Barry for allowing me to get on my
soapbox. I also apologize to the members of these lists for having to
endure this long running diatribe. If anyone has any questions about
the upcoming Chicago Show please address them to either me or Arlene
she is the current president of the CKA. Thank you all for allowing
me to address this group.
